new piece with Brookings/Berkley Center

Posted: June 17th, 2019 by phenne

I wrote a commentary piece for the Brookings Institute/Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs’ “geopolitics of religious soft power project.” This project explores how states use religion in their foreign policies, and my contribution looks at America and Russia, drawing on research for my new book project. It is available here.

new forthcoming publication

Posted: May 30th, 2019 by phenne

I’m excited to announce that I have a new article forthcoming in Terrorism and Political Violence. “Assessing the impact of the Global War on Terrorism on terrorism threats in Muslim countries” uses data from my book to assess whether Muslim states’ cooperation with America on counterterrorism helped or hurt when it came to terrorist threats. I find that it actually seemed to help; states that cooperated with the United States experienced a drop in deaths from terrorist attacks. I have a working paper available on my website, and will update it when the final article becomes available.

Awarded new grant

Posted: April 1st, 2019 by phenne

I’m excited to receive one of the project launch grants from Notre Dame’s Global Religion Research Institute. This is a great initiative supporting new research on religion around the world. The grant will support my work applying social network analysis to assess the state of Islamic and secular politics in the Middle East. I presented preliminary work on this project at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, and will present more of this work at the Political Networks conference and the American Political Science Association annual meeting.

new research encyclopedia chapter on religion and terrorism

Posted: January 29th, 2019 by phenne

I have a chapter in the new Oxford Research Encyclopedia, focusing on religion and terrorism. I survey the literature, highlighting key findings and continuing debate. I also provide some suggestions for future research. It is available here.

new article out on religious conflict and repression

Posted: December 18th, 2018 by phenne

I have a new article out in the Journal of Conflict Resolution (technically in the January 2019 issue), “Taming the Gods: How religious conflict shapes religious repression,” with Jason Klocek (a UC-Berkeley PhD who is currently on a postdoc at Notre Dame). We argue that histories of religious conflict make governments concerned about the political power of religious contention, and they intensify repression as a result. A copy is available on my publications page.

new article on nationalism

Posted: December 6th, 2018 by phenne

I have an article on The Big Q, a New Zealand site, on nationalism. I look at what scholars of nationalism may say about Donald Trump’s appeals to nationalism, and French President Macron’s suggestion of patriotism as an alternative.

new article on the UN and religious repression

Posted: November 5th, 2018 by phenne

I have a new article in the Journal of Church and State I analyze the relationship between states’ activity in the UN Human Rights Council and their domestic religious repression and find they’re connected. I argue this is because states can use their activity on the council to deflect criticism of their rights record, with religious repression being particularly easy to mask.

new media appearance

Posted: October 26th, 2018 by phenne

I appeared on WCAX this week, discussing the current state of US-Saudi relations in light of the apparent murder of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi.

new Washington Post article

Posted: October 5th, 2018 by phenne

I have an article today in the Washington Post’s Monkeycage feature, analyzing the recent deal between Russia and Turkey over Syria. I argue this represents an attempt at great power management, which may signal a new model for regional order.
